. the only time i thought he was a superb evader was with john mccain, and they really had to knock him up to do that. he is a competitor, he will be that, but romney has done this consistently brought the campaign. he has been a very good debater when he had to be. he had good debates in the primaries when he needed to. obama, this was a very big missed opportunity. looking down all the time was legal. >> colby? where was the presence fastball? >> he did not have it. he did not have anything. they are dancing in the end zone, the republicans, but they are not even at halftime. the president did not bring his game. you cannot blame anybody, not the moderator, jim lehrer, how he handled it, you cannot blame the remarks of romney. the president, i believe, fair warning is fair play. he knew exactly what kind of the bitter romney was. he only needed to look at the videotape from florida. he did everything wrong. the optics were wrong, looking down, not looking at him in the eyes. he did not have responses. he let mitt romney get away with saying things, like this $716 billion number for medic

be facing our economy right now. christine stay right where you are. i want to bring in john king who has been a debate moderator in the past as well as sam nunn, a senator from georgia. he's actively working with both alan simpson and erskine bowles to find sensible solutions to the current gridlock. think of this as simpson-bowles 2.0. senator nunn has been highly critical of both republicans and democrats over their handling of the fiscal cliff that threatens our economy. senator nunn you said both sides steam have a political strategy but their governing strategy is in doubt. those are your words. have you ever seen america so broken that lawmakers would rather take the economy to the brink. why are we richinging this? why are rerisking people's decisions whether to employ somebody. >> it's a very dangerous game of chicken going on and i think that game needs to be changed and even changed quickly. the lame duck session can do that. what i would like to see is instead of kicking the can down the road and kicking the cliff down the road with this same draconian solution if we don't rea

to around people they didn't see al gore getting in. the other was john edwards. i liked john edwards at the time. and that didn't go -- there was a little bit of back and forth going on with that. and that didn't seem to be developing. so didn't look like anything was going to happen. there was one other candidates i liked. it was president obama. four years and a half years ago people back in the fall of 2006 would say things like, he's never going get elected there's no way america would elect a prime african-american you can't get elected with the name barack obama. it's actually didn't matter. i didn't know anybody in chicago. i didn't know anybody around the candidate. so it didn't look like anything was going to be happening. december 26, december 26, 2006 my wife and i were shopping day after christmas we were shopping in a borns and noble just up the road in california. my phone goes off. this is right out of west wing. it's like, my tornado watch. it's somebody calling to find out if i'm interesting in working with the barack obama campaign. and so, of course, i was. i was q

john danforth, a force in the st. louis community, said he would rather write in a candidate than support akin. >> i can understand their position. i mean, it's like counting apples. you know, they're saying, "well, we need 50 or 51 in the senate and he's one person who's competing for a seat." but i see him as the apple that spoils the barrel. i mean, that's the way i look at akin. i think that he really hurts the republican brand and he damages the party nationally, and that it's very important for republicans to say no. >> ifill: akin says he'll settle for support from republicans out of state, including former presidential candidates mike huckabee, rick santorum, and newt gingrich, and even pat boone. all that has left both mccaskill and akin fighting for the middle, with mccaskill condemning akin as extreme. >> he believes that a rape victim should not be able to get emergency contraception. that's a fundamental core belief he has. he believes that the federal government should not tell employers that they are limited in terms of how they can discriminate against women. it's
